Excellent condition

Fairways and greens are well maintained. Greens are exceptional, good speed and putts roll true. Rough is also well maintained, not heavy so pace of play is good. Tees are at good yardage’s for different abilities. Bring your own soft drinks/water because there was no beverage cart on this Saturday morning round. Hot dogs st the turn were good and staff are friendly.

Well maintained.

A little wet on a couple holes. Beautiful trees throughout the course. Over all a pleasant course to play. The only negative was waiting on a slow twosome on most holes, which could happen anywhere.
